Verdict

True Spirit was raised only 1lb for winning at Wolverhampton in January. But the handicapper looks to have got it right as Paul D'Arcy's charge has been well beaten since. Preference goes to BLADEWOOD GIRL, who has leading claims with a repeat of her second at Yarmouth back in April off today's mark. Big City Boy was placed here last time ahead of the veteran Alfresco, who hasn't won since 2011, with Silvala Dance further behind. The remainder make no appeal.
